The rescue center started as a labor of love pioneered by Lily Hagnauer a woman of Swiss decent, who in the 1960´s was giving an ocelot that was found hurt in the jungle by hunters to care for.

 

Lilly´s care of the animal was so great that pretty soon other hunters and families, who owned wild animals as pet and couldn´t take of them or were found hurt in the jungle, started to bring them to Lily who thru great effort and using her own resources built the first enclosures of what would later become Los Pumas Rescue Center. Some of the animals that you can see here are: white faced capuccine monkeys, jaguars, ocelots, spider monkeys, margays, scarlet macaws, toucans, pumas, jaguarondi, etc
